The purpose of "One with Air"

14 July 2013 - 02:39 AM

I was hoping someone can enlighten me on the use of this trait, "One with Air'.

The more I think about it, the more confused I am.
When we play the Elementalist, attunement swapping is almost the "trademark".
However when you use "One with Air", it resets upon attunement swapping. Even better, when you swapped back to air, it takes another 50 seconds to charge up!

So what exactly is the purpose of this trait? Do we only use this for long distance marathon?

Login screen and character slots

21 June 2013 - 10:03 AM

With the recent sale of the character slot, I have bought myself a 8th slot for my last profession.

When I got the new slot in my account, I am surprised to see that I cannot see all 8 of my characters in the login screen (the login screen can see only 7 character slots).

I am assuming here that to be able to see 8 slots would be the optimal number as there are 8 profession in the game. Hence I am hoping Anet would change the login to support 8 slots instead of 7.

I understand that this is a low priority request and most probably be ignored :(

So how about you guys? What would be the optimal number of characters you would like to see in the login screen?

Killing normal PvE mobs only

20 February 2013 - 12:24 PM

Recently I am thinking of making a warrior for killing PvE mobs only. As I have other characters, I do not need my warrior to do Dungeons or WvW.

Rather, I would like to create a Warrior that I could causally "OWNZ" most if not all of the normal mobs including veterans and perhaps join others in killing dragons occasionally (not important).

I hope the community can help me with a Warrior build that could easily do this. The build should

(1) Kill normal mobs quickly and yet almost mindlessly
(2) Kill veteran mobs quickly (if it takes some skill here, it is fine)

It will great if you can also recommend the gears (weapon sets, armor type, runes and jewellery) for this.
Again, tagging mobs for loots or karma is of little important.

Disappointed with same skin for Corrupted Long and Short Bows

26 January 2013 - 04:50 PM

Today I have finally saved enough to buy myself the corrupted short bow. I already have the long bow version.

To my utter disappointment, I discovered that the short bow skin is exactly the same as the long bow version!

I consider corrupted short bow to be one of the "high-end" bow designed for its visual look (stats are the same as the crafted valkyrie short bow). The corrupted lodestones are selling for around 1.6G now and I have saved some time for them.  I feel Anet should not do such a  "cheap" way of getting around designing a long/short bow skin. So much for the visual carrot :(

Well lesson learnt ... dun trust Anet when in come to bow skins. Always check the internet :/

Does Power/Toughness/Vitality affect Minions?

29 December 2012 - 12:49 AM

Sorry to ask a noob question, but does adding power, toughness and vitality also add to minions' power/toughness/vitality?
